Raymond Delgado
Doctor of Education, 2019
University of Redlands
Advisor: James Valadez, Ph. D.
 
Secondary school principals increasingly face the challenge of working in the space between the existing, obsolete paradigm of education (standardized testing and accountability) and the paradigm that has yet to come into existence (i.e., a radically different way of thinking about education as a social system).  Principals continue to be held accountable for increasing student achievement (based on continued use of assessment tools that are inadequate to prepare students …


Responding To The Absence Of Leadership Education In The Early Years Curriculum.Doc, Elena Merenda Aug 2019

Responding To The Absence Of Leadership Education In The Early Years Curriculum.Doc, Elena Merenda

Elena Merenda


The field of early childhood is in a state of flux. Governments nation-wide are initiating changes, in response to the growing body of research demonstrating that early engagements with children and families creates positive outcomes for the whole community. Due to this evolution, there is a social and political expectation that early childhood professionals act as leaders. Although leadership is necessary as the field evolves, the literature suggests that early childhood professionals are hesitant to enact leadership, as their nurturing and caring characteristics are contrary to those required by traditional leadership models enacted by men. In order to empower early …

Understanding the relationship between LMX and OCB in a federal government organization may …

This case presents some of the leadership challenges associated with the internationalization of a medium scale teaching oriented State university located in the West Coast United States. For this university, the priority for internationalization has moved from the fringes to the very core, bring with this a range of challenges and opportunities. The …

Fostering Leadership Capacity Among Black Male Achievers.Pdf, Jasmine Collins, Cecilia E. Suarez, Cameron Beatty, David Rosch

Cameron C. Beatty

This study investigates the extent to which leadership capacity gains differ between participants of a leader development session targeted towards Black men and (a) other Black men who participated in racially and gender-diverse sessions; and (b) a racially proportionate sample of other men in racially and gender-diverse sessions. We employed an anti-deficit achievement framework within this research. Findings suggested that Black men who attended an all-Black Male session made gains similar or greater than each comparison group, even considering elevated capacity levels prior to participating. This study addresses important implications for understanding how engaging with same-race, same-gendered peers in formal …


Leaders As Linchpins For Framing Meaning, Pamela L. Eddy Jan 2017

Leaders As Linchpins For Framing Meaning, Pamela L. Eddy

Pamela L. Eddy

Community college leaders serve as linchpins for framing meaning on campus. The current pressures on institutions (given declining financial resources, demands for accountability, changing faculty ranks, and societal need for new knowledge) require presidents to juggle multiple priorities while presenting a cohesive message to campus constituents. This study examined how the presidents at nine community colleges communicated with college constituents and framed the meaning of those communications to help the college community make sense of ongoing change. Interviews with the presidents, as well as with key administrators, faculty members, and staff members, revealed that the presidents used emissaries to disseminate …

Joseph D Tariman PhD, RN, ANP-BC, FAAN

Aims and Objectives: The purpose of this study was to assess the acceptability and usability of
a standardized communication tool for nurses.

communication tools such as flyers, posters, emails, unit huddles, and unit meetings there is no
means to guarantee attendance to crucial information.
Design: Descriptive, cross sectional …

Insights Into Academic Librarian Leadership Using The Bolman And Deal Leadership Orientation Framework, Colleen Boff Nov 2015

Insights Into Academic Librarian Leadership Using The Bolman And Deal Leadership Orientation Framework, Colleen Boff

Colleen T. Boff, Ed.D.

Are librarians prepared to lead academic libraries into the increasingly complex future of higher education? Results will be shared from a survey using the Bolman and Deal leadership orientation framework (1990, 1991, 1992, 2003) to explore how academic library leaders and managers in Ohio and Michigan prefer to interpret and solve problems. Consisting of four frames, librarians can view situations through a structural lens (involving policies, rules and organizational charts), a human resources lens (tending to the needs of employees), the political lens (competing for power and scarce resources) or the symbolic lens (storytelling, traditions and symbols). Research conducted in …

School Policies, Leadership, And Learning With Technologies : An International Comparative Study, Kathryn Moyle Jan 2015

School Policies, Leadership, And Learning With Technologies : An International Comparative Study, Kathryn Moyle

Professor Kathryn Moyle (consultant)

Little research has been conducted into the links or intersections between school leadership, teaching and learning with technologies, and the quality of students' outcomes at school. While it is recognised that principals hold a central position in leading schools pedagogical and administrative practices, little is known about what is the role of the school principal in implementing policies that are aimed at improving the quality of teaching and learning in schools, or to achieve smart student learning outcomes. These issues are examined in this paper by reviewing and analysing national school education policies from Singapore, Finland and Hong Kong: countries …


Lean In Or Opt Out? Career Pathways Of Academic Women, Pamela Eddy, Kelly Ward Dec 2014

Lean In Or Opt Out? Career Pathways Of Academic Women, Pamela Eddy, Kelly Ward

Pamela L. Eddy


Sheryl Sandberg’s book Lean In has prompted a range of conversations on campus—among women students who are becoming exposed to notions of discrimination, women faculty who are raising issues of equity in work roles and promotion, and women administrators who are trying to reconcile Sandberg’s advice to lean in with the fact that few women lead college campuses. The premise of Lean In is that greater will power and fortitude can enable women to surmount barriers that have prevented them from ascending to top-level positions. In this article, we examine how Sandberg’s call for women’s increased agency intersects with organizational …
